A project that until a few years ago seemed utopian, tonight takes on flesh and blood. The American Song Contest, the American version of our favorite Eurovision, starts tonight.
At 1:00 a.m. CET, eleven artists from eleven states will compete in the first qualifying round of the American Song Contest.
The American Song Contest 2022 will start on Monday, March 21 and will last for 8 weeks, until the big winner is announced on May 9. The competition will be attended by 50 US states, five overseas US acquisitions and the capital, Washington DC.
The competition part will consist of the qualifiers, the semifinals and the grand final. In the grand final, the finalist states will compete for the title of “Best Original Song” of the USA.
In tonight’s first qualifier participate:
- Iowa: Alisabeth Von Presley – “Wonder”
- Arkansas: Kelsey Lamb – “Never Like This”
- Wisconsin: Jake’O – “Feel Your Love”
- Wyoming: Ryan Charles – “New Boot Goofin”
- Indiana: UG skywalkin – “Love For My City”
- Minnesota: Yam Haus – “Ready To Go”
- Mississippi: Keyone Starr – “Fire”
- Oklahoma: AleXa – “Wonderland”
- Puerto Rico: Christian Pagán – “LOKO”
- Rhode Island: Hueston – “Held On Too Long”
- Connecticut: Michael Bolton – “Beautiful World”
A jury of 56 people, one for each of the states, will vote on the songs. The winner of the jury vote will be the first finalist of the semifinal.
The rest of the songs that were not selected by the jury, will be judged by the public. Voting will last two days until Wednesday. The public vote will select three more semi-finalists. The announcement of the semifinalists will be made each time at the beginning of next week’s show.
A total of twenty artists will compete in the semifinals of the American Song Contest.
Two of the biggest names in the American music industry will present the long-awaited American Song Contest. Snoop Dog and Kelly Clarkson will be the presenters of the American Song Contest.
The first qualifier starts at 01:00 CET and you can watch it live on NBC.
